Compare IHaveToGoIronMyDog, where the excuse is to remove oneself from the situation immediately rather than avoiding a future date. Doesn't work on the LiteralMinded, the {{Cloudcuckoolander}}, or anyone particularly [[StalkerWithACrush determined]] (or [[CovertPervert just]] [[TheCasanova plain]] [[KavorkaMan lecherous]]): "That's a lot of hair.

Compare and contrast IHaveToGoIronMyDog, where the excuse is blatantly just a nonsensical lie.

* On ''Series/{{Cheers}}'', Cliff tries telling another bar patron about his trip to Florida. The other patron excuses himself by saying "You know, I just realized that I think I left my oven on." As he heads for the door, he mutters "If I hurry, maybe I can stick my head in it."



* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Barney announces to the bar that he has a date "with the crazy lady who's always yelling stuff in front of the drug store," and a dejected Moe sighs and says "she told me she was washing her hair tonight."

** The episode "Trilogy of Error" has Lisa and Homer attempt this to get out of eating Marge's terrible breakfast. Naturally, Homer botches it.
-->'''Lisa''': Say, Dad! Would you like to see my science project?\\
'''Homer''': No, Lisa! But I sure don't want to eat this terrible breakfast!

* Used against Dexter on the ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}!'' episode "Dance of Doom".

* Used against Dexter on the ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}!'' episode "Dance of Doom". His future girlfriend (well, Freakazoid's) Debbie uses this trope as an excuse to turn him down for the Daylight Savings Dance, another girl claims she's due for a surgical procedure. However, AlphaBitch Val just tells him she'd only date him if "she were ugly and dead". Ironically, she's the one Freakazoid kisses after he saves the students from Cave Guy.
--> '''Freakazoid''': That was cheap, tawdry and based solely on hormones. WORKS FOR ME!

** It remained a legitimate thing right up until the widespread availability of commercial shampoos and conditioners. Washing hair with plain soap leaves a residue, so it was wash, rinse, change the water and add a little lemon juice or vinegar (to remove the residue), then change the water ''again'' for the final rinse. Even when hair styles became generally shorter prior to/after WorldWarTwo, it could still be a long and occasionally arduous process. See [[http://youtu.be/Lao3GaYXLjs here]].

* The ladyfolk of ''Webcomic/{{Loserz}}'' would rather, amongst other things, paint the Cistine Chapel, [[FetishFuel Lick their own asshole]] or [[EatsBabies eat babies]] than date Erik or Ben. Disco Jesus, however... doesn't date boys.
